Mental Health First Aid is a national best-practice, evidence-based certification course that is 8 hours in length, consisting of 2 hours of self-paced learning and 6 hours of instructor-led material over Zoom. Youth Mental Health First Aid leads to a 3-year certification issued by the National Council for Mental Wellbeing.

This training will be held on Zoom on Thursday, August 17th, 2023 from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. There will be small breaks and time for lunch, but please come to the training prepared with whatever will make you comfortable (snacks, drinks, etc).
